Doing Time
On a dark and rainy afternoon
Whence I’d been sentenced to my bedroom
For my crime of failing to take care
To not be a pain in my mother’s derriere 
As it happens, I was a lad of six
Full of mischief and annoying...Read More

Vintage Cheese
My eyes scan over the table.
My taste buds begin to perspire.
There’s so much food here on offer,
so I wonder what I’ll desire. 

There are some beautiful salads.
There’s carrot, corn and green peas,
bar-be-cue meat to perfection,
and a platter of selected cheese.

There...Read More

Vase Dream II Epicurious
I want a freshly baked kaiser roll 
Sliced in two with nice lean roast beef
Laid between so I can call it sandwich
Swiss cheese, tomato, Vidalia onion
(Sliced not chopped) with a dab of mayo
And horseradish sauce or hollandaise 
Vinegar/salt chips and...Read More

Premium Member Food is Often a Memory
Food is often a memory 
butterscotch pudding for me
and Cheetoes
and swiss cheese fondue
all three bad memories
I guess those must stick the hardest and longest

On Tuesday I was a prancy, dancy, pirate queen, 
On Wednesday I was a velvet-clad bohemian traveling fancy lady, 
Yesterday I as a native American who had been done wrong by cowboys.

I am on a Treasure Island today.

Fruit of Value
Name the fruit that has raised the most hell.
It's the apple.  Why so?  I will tell.
It is poison, temptation,
Swiss medieval sensation.
Just ask Adam, Snow White and Will Tell....Read More

It's 1969, time of the great Apollo 11 mission
The world stopped and acknowledged this first admission

Most amazing since meat
John Glenn was first to discredit the cheesy superstistion

Premium Member Three Brothers We
Three brothers we, three brothers we;
living together, within our tree.
We’re raccoons who so, do love cheese;
We do love brie, we do love brie.

We don’t like nuts, they give us gas;

we are raccoons of...Read More

An army of wood ants ,
In Swiss Jura Mountains,
Lift up the mighty leaf
Overhead,to feed

The queen, a  fairy , labors in her womb
The males carry thin paper wings, too
Female workers  go without  
The queen populates the colony and...Read More

To My Love Part 1 TBC
Far from having a nascent thought that envelops my rabid self,
Like inside of an accurate Swiss watch that had been given -
A present to presidents and diplomats from the 70’s era,
Memories in the kaleidoscope of life, one by one,
Like crazy...Read More

Premium Member With A Flowing Hand

It’s time to write of unnecessary things,
to imagine alternative endings to journeys not taken.

This stained coffee mug
that nudges my elbow like a muddy bible;
it has not been washed for 2 days
but I still read it faithfully, return to it,
until sufficiently...Read More

Feeding the Grands
Yogurt smoothies, Cocoa Puffs,
Mac & cheese and chicken;
Mushrooms, couscous, turkey (sliced)
And lots of snacks for pickin’.

Cheetos, corn chips, Goldfish,
Peaches, olives and a plum;
Watermelon, cantaloupe
And still, there’s more to come…

Swiss cheese, pickles, Kit Kats
And some mini ice-cream cones;
Yummy corn still on...Read More

Cheese Fun-due
Who says chocolate fondue
Makes the perfect rendez-vous?
Here’s a secret: you can meet
For a cheese fondue retreat
Which will make your life complete!

Rub a fondue pot with garlic
Add some white wine and some brandy
When it simmers stir the cheese-

Premium Member Incurable

He studies the dinner card,
ticks off the boxes for Jell-O
and fruit cups; anticipates a deliciousness
that he will later swallow mechanically
on a plastic spoon.

He’s fascinated by his own breath;
tasting it on the exhalation, savoring a coolness,
as lungs struggle to filter
the chemical...Read More

They argued about the ruble, the kyat, the gold cordoba too
More conversation about lira, Swiss franc, and Moldova Leu.
Discussion soon turned to the rupee, new peso and Brazilian real,
Money talk ceased as they lined up for their evening meal.

In a green meadow upon a Swiss hill
Was a shepherd looking after his sheep 
A lone grey wolf came looking for a kill
Hans turned sharply and looked in disbelief .

Premium Member Too Nice to Paint In

lime green stripes
polka dotted curtains
not dotted swiss, but large gaudy exuberant dots

Weird how one has allowed her children the same courtesy
But curiously the other says her house is too nice to paint in

Inside Me
Sparkling lights
in the middle of the night.
The sounds of every child's

These are the things
that live inside of me.

Glinting waves
in the California sun.
?A summertime love
that has just begun.

These are the things
that live inside of me.

A giggle.
A kiss.

Though A Destitute Alteh Kocker
Though A Destitute Alteh Kocker...

(albeit boyish), I tell myself with pride
always look on the bright toothless side
of life, this nonconformist tried
his darnedest with
threadbare trappings to abide

despite bristling, harumphing,
and lamenting luckless life,
while woe didst ride
shotgun squeezing snotty
schnozzle, nuzzling nose, wide

dilating nostrils...Read More

Geneva - A Swiss Crown
It was over twenty years ago

one day sailed into the city so grand

Sailing into the majestic Geneva
the mighty water fountain confronts you
a prelude to the magnificence supreme
indeed a Swiss crown one...Read More
